Uncheck “Install new versions automatically” in Internet Explorer 10 during deployment

IF you during deployment you want to easily uncheck “Install new versions automatically” feature, there is a registry setting you can configure prior to actual IE setup.exe or msi, whatever you use.


Copy the following text to a notepad and save it as a REG file. Then use REG IMPORT “Disable_AutoUpdate.reg” before you deploy your IE and that’s all.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

For example, here’s our script to deploy IE and disable auto update:

: - - - - - - Uncheck "Install new versions automatically" - - - - - - -
REG IMPORT "Disable_AutoUpdate.reg"
: - - - - - - Install Application - - - - - - -
MSIExec /i "IE10-Setup-Full.msi" /qn /norestart /l*v C:\Windows\Temp\Microsoft_IE10_x64_ENG_R1_Install.log
